Well here we are at the end of 
another Mortal Kombat series. 
Hopefully you all had as much tun 
reading these books as Mark and I 
had making them. And so for now, we 
will take a short break from the outra- 
geous world of Mortal Kombat to sail 
our ship through other seas. Our many 
thanks to all of you who sent letters 
and drawings to us over the course ol 
the last year, your input has helped us 
out on more than one occasion. Our 
grandest apologies go out to those of 
you who begged and pleaded to 
have your letters answered and print- 
ed, they just don't give us room 
enough for all of them. 

We hope everyone is having a great 
summer, I know that we are out here. 
By the way, the other day I met some- 
one who is involved with setting up the 
website for Mortal Kombat on the 
internet. We got to talking about the 
MK movie which is due to come out in 
August. Now I don't know where you 
are, but here in Los Angeles we have 
screenings of films before they are 
actually released. So there are a 
lucky tew who have seen the movie 
already, and fhe feedback on it has 
been exceptionally good. Plenty of 
action and special effects to go 
around. By the time you read this, 
many of you will have already 
checked it out, but in case you 
haven't, now you have something to 
look forward to. 

So anyway, let's have one final letter 
to close out the Kail To Kombat col- 
umn, shall we? 

Dear Mark, Don, and the whole MK 
crew. 

This letter has been long in coming - 
partly because I've never written a 
letter like this before. First of all. I wont 
to congratulate you on the bang-up 
job you are doing with this title. As 
incredible as it may seem, I am o 
newcomer to the whole MK phenom- 
enon. I Just recently became entan- 
gled in all this about three months 
ago when I first noticed Hasbro's 12- 
Inch Rayden figure. I Immediately fell 
in love with his look and, in an effort to 
discover more about him, I discovered 
the entire saga surrounding this 
impressive cast of characters. 
Needless to say, I fell into the pit. Now 
l can't get enough of MK which leads 
me to pick up your fine book every 
month. 

I'll tip my hat to Charles Marshall first. 
He's doing an excellent job with the 
stories. Having been a comic book 



collector for 13 years - since I was 8 -- 1 
have become very picky about the quali- 
ty of the stories that I read, I must honestly 
admit that I was expecting to either get a 
book wfth nothing but cover to cover 
fighting and minimal plot thrown together 
to move the panels along, or a book con- 
sisting of "pin-up" art with minimal plotlines 
similar to the stuff that some companies 
have recently been publishing and dub- 
bing "quality stories." I'm glad to say that 
I'm extremely pleased with what I have 
found, Mr, Marshall has found a way to 
bring the characters to vivid life beyond 
the fights. It Is a treat to see them Interact 
with each other in words and feelings as 
well as actions. 

The recent "Rayden and Kano" and 
' Battle wave" mlnlserles are the best work 
I've seen yet from Marshall. I hope he con- 
tinues to investigate exactly what makes a 
god like Rayden "tick" and continually 
become involved with the world of mor- 
tals. Rayden was quite shaken up at the 
end of "Rayden and Kano" ond I definite- 
ly hope that he doesn't give up his god- 
hood, as hinted at in 'Battlewave" #4 
(though it would put him in a most interest- 
ing situation, much like the one Sonya is 
currently In with Shao Kahn - 1 hope she 
makes It through this In one piece) There's 
a lot of stuff going on at one time in 
"Battlewave," and each issue has left me 
anxious for the next one. 

I do have one criticism for Marshall and If 
Is actually more like an observation. 
Rayden is a god. Some of the MK charac- 
ters, namely Sonya, Cage, and Jax, come 
from a culture that is monotheistic. Here 
they are encountering a being that calls 
himselt a god - one of many in a mytho- 
logical pantheon similar to what the 
ancient Greeks believed in. I think that 
they would be a little hard pressed to 
believe him, You could basically do on 
entire story just on how the three of them 
reoct towdrds Rayden. I don't think that 
we have seen a realistic depiction of how 
they would react to the thunder god. The 
same thing occurs in the MK novel by Jeff 
Ravine. Everyone seems to be missing this. 
Oh. well . . . other than that, I have noth- 
ing but praise for Marshall. Keep up the 
great work I 

The next tip of the hat goes to the talent- 
ed team working on the art. From the pen- 
cillers to the inkers to the colorists, they 
have all been superb, I would have to say 
that my favorite penclller is, by far, Patrick 
Rolo. Please don't ever make the mistake 
of removing him from this title. His artwork 
fits this book perfectly, It's bold, dynamic, 
extremely eye-catching and "in-your- 
face" -- just like the game that spawned 
this book. They go hand In hand. 
"Battlewavs" tA has been his best work 



yet. I was totally blown away by that Issue. 
The two people I consider the best to pair 
up with Patrick's work have got to be 
Bobby Rae and Richard Emond. Their Ink- 
ing abilities perfectly match Patrick's style 
and I hope that we continue to see more 
of them in future projects, For all the folks 
who provide the colors, a great big pat on 
the backl This title has been blessed with 
great color work since its very first issue, 
Every issue has been vibrant and well-bal- 
anced. They are all doing a fabulous job! 

As you can probably tell, I am very 
pleased with the collaborative effort on all 
the books this title has had. I'm eagerly 
awaiting #5 of "Battlewave." I am also 
awaiting the special one shots due out this 
summer, especially the one on Kung Lao - 
he's my next favorite character. 

I'm desperately hoping that the live tour 
comes to town, I am very curious to see 
how they are going to pull off Rayden 's 
lightning attacks on stage. The movie hits 
theatres on August 18th. I'm still trying to 
figure out how they are working the story - 
- whether It takes place before the first 
game or after the first game and before 
the second, Shang Tsung looks pretty 
young to me but there is no hint of Shao 
Kahn lingering about. Kltana is in this 
movie, though it seems to be focusing on 
the original MK characters. Wtw does 
Rayden have long white hair and Where's 
his 'real' outfit, especially his straw hat? 
(Has anyone ever noticed that, if you turn 
his hat upside down it resembles a wok?) I 
do. however, think that Christopher 
Lambert Is an excellent choice to portray 
the Thunder God, I do not know if he has 
any actual martial arts training but, after 
watching him in the first three Highlander 
movies, I'm at least confident that he can 
wield a very mean sword, Oh well, I'm just 
gonna have to wait . , . this is gonna be a 
hard wait. 

Then, after the movie, comes the anxious 
wait for MK3 to hit the home video game 
turf. The Sony Playstation version comes 
out in November '95, The Sega Saturn's 
version comes out In '96, I'll probably be 
getting both (I'm also a video game nut- 
I'm sure that doesn't surprise you). Like t 
said, I just can't get enough of MK. 

Thank you all for the great work, I wish 
you continued success. I know that you 
will not disappoint me. 'Till next time.
